Missing from 28 February 2005

Lisa Dorrian is described as being 25 years old (at the time of going missing), 5 feet tall, slim build, blonde hair and blue eyes. Last known to be wearing a white t-shirt top with lettering on the front, cream tracksuit bottoms and white furry ‘moon’ boots.

Last seen: At a party in a caravan site in Ballyhalbert on 28 February 2005.

Additional information: Police believe that Lisa Dorrian was murdered, but her body has not been located yet.

In 2022 Detective Superintendent Eamonn Corrigan said: “Despite extensive search operations and thousands of lines of enquiries being completed, Lisa’s body has not been found, and those responsible for her murder have not been brought to justice. It’s almost 18 years on, and the pain still felt by Lisa’s family is understandably as raw as ever. Lisa’s family and friends won’t give up their search for answers and, likewise, our determination remains steadfast. Those responsible, and those withholding information, must surely have a heavy conscience? They are denying this family the most basic of rights, and that’s the right to lay their loved one to rest.”

Lisa’s sister Joanne said: “As a family, we cannot express how much we want Lisa back. There are not enough words to show how we all feel. People cannot understand what this feels like: the not knowing, the absence of Lisa’s body, the lack of closure.”

As of 2022 the independent Charity Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to £20,000 for information leading to either the arrest and conviction of those responsible or the recovery of her body. Anyone who provides information to Crimestoppers can remain anonymous and the charity will not ask for or store any personal details, including internet addresses.
